Brenda Neuenschwander founded The International House (I-House) 15 years ago. Operating as a non-profit, the I-House functions as a bridge for refugees and immigrants to assist with assimilation within the Fort Wayne community. Its efforts and holistic programming are recognized with the Community Organization Award. I-House participants are from over 30 countries and attend weekly English classes, as well as other programs. It also offers programming for children, including summer camps and afterschool tutoring. All of I-House's programming is overseen by Heather Morris and Ann Heign, with a team of 70 volunteers who assist with everything from transportation to childcare and course instruction.
